Notes

  • Disputed Goal Scorer:  Conflicting reports are at odds to the sequence of goals. Some suggest that it was Cobbold that scored the 3rd goal and that the first was the own goal scored by Powell. Whichever way round, it was the first ever own goal awarded to England.
  • Goal Milestone:  1st Own Goal
